Different parents, different children: Muscle-invasive and non-muscle invasive bladder cancers arise from different stem cells
December 17, 2013 · Comments Off
A CU Cancer Center study published today in the journal Stem Cells shows that progenitor cells that create dangerous, muscle-invasive bladder cancer are different than the progenitor cells that create non-muscle invasive bladder cancer. Though these two cancers grow at the same site, they are different diseases.

CU-led trial makes math work for cancer patients
May 13, 2013 · Comments Off
If the genomic revolution has taught us anything about cancer, it’s that cancer isn’t cancer. It’s cancers, a plurality extending much deeper than the distinctions of the diseases’ early footholds in the skin, breast, prostate, lung, liver, brain, blood, bladder and elsewhere.
AACR News: Little molecule makes big difference in bladder cancer metastasis
April 9, 2013 · Comments Off
In order to kill, bladder cancer must metastasize, most commonly to the lung – what are the differences between bladder cancers that do and do not make this deadly transition? Research presented by the Director of the University of Colorado Cancer Center at the AACR Annual Meeting 2013 shows that one big difference is a little molecule known as hsa-miR-146a.
AACR News: Misregulated genes common to tobacco-related cancers offer potential new prognostic tool
April 9, 2013 · Comments Off
"We ultimately envision this as a prognostic tool to predict survival rates for people with tobacco related cancers. Recognizing patients with high expression of these genes could help us predict risk and so match patients with the most appropriate treatments," says Garrett Dancik, PhD, postdoc in the lab of Dan Theodorescu, MD, PhD, director of the University of Colorado Cancer Center.
Body’s ibuprofen, SPARC, reduces inflammation and thus bladder cancer development and metastasis
January 16, 2013 · Comments Off
A University of Colorado Cancer Center study published today in the Journal of Clinical Investigation shows that the protein SPARC (Secreted Protein Acidic and Rich in Cysteine) acts much like an anti-inflammatory drug, attempting to heal tissues inflamed by tumors. Likewise, cancers – for example, bladder cancer in this study – have developed ways to turn off the production of SPARC, thus allowing growth and metastasis, especially to the lung where bladder cancer is frequently fatal.
